Finding your Way around Swindon Open Studios- Part 4 North and West

There are 4 venues in this area, quite a long distance from each other, but well worth visiting.
 NB. Venue 10, Cathy Hyland is no longer part of SOS.
Starting with Every Cloud Arts and Crafts, a maker's co-operative launched in 2013 by seven local artists and craftspeople who have uncovered their talent through adversity. They are at Stanton Park Farmhouse, Stanton County Park, SN6 7SF. Below there's a picture of Geoff's poppies. I would love one of these for my garden:
From there the nearest venue is Maggie Harris who lives at 2, Nolan Close, St.Andrew's Ridge, SN25 4GP, Maggie has a lovely studio with lots of fascinating textile and mixed media work which she will demonstrate to visitors. Go and have a look at the wonderful work Maggie produces like this below:
From Maggie's house you could visit TWIGS, who will be displaying their wind chimes and mobiles in the Olive Tree Cafe, Manor Garden Centre, Cheney Manor, SN2 2QJ like this splendid one below, perfect for enhancing the garden:
From TWIGS, the next venue where Billy Beaumont has an exhibition at Riff's Bar Recording Room, 28, Greatfield, Hook, SN4 8EQ. Go and have a look at Billy's latest work, including his portrait of the Queen.
